The conference, which took place at the Provincial Council of Jaén, was attended by numerous road service technicians, as well as a large group of contractors from the area.

During the meeting, the representatives of our Company gave a presentation on Repsol asphalts and highlighted the importance of safety when handling bitumen, a product considered a dangerous good for road transport (ADR), with its temperature being the main risk.

In this regard, participants highlighted the importance that all those involved in the supply chain – the suppliers who load it, transporters, drivers, and customers – exercise extreme caution.

Sustainable roads

Participants also discussed sustainable techniques and solutions for roads with low traffic intensity.

The bituminous mixtures manufactured from our product aim to achieve a series of technical, environmental, and social characteristics that reduce their environmental impact and create a road that is safer for the user and sustainable for society.
